    No retail keys do exist for this edition, MAKs only.

    In fact, they come with Volume:GVLK (KMS client) pre-installed.

    What are you talking about? There is no Retail version of Enterprise. Afaik Enterprise doesn't prompt you for key install at Setup :g:.

    Actually, there are retail keys for Enterprise.
    They are just never used.

    You know how ProWMC and Core editions have gVLK that are not used unless you cheat?
    Enterprise is the same way.

    To answer the question, though; there's no way to activate Enterprise with a retail key currently.
